UK preparing for ISIS dirty bomb amid fears hackers could ATTACK nuclear power plants

Western nations have been scrambling to improve their security procedures since the rise of rogue organisations such as ISIS, which has expressed an ambition to obtain a dirty bomb.

The UK and United States will also take part in a joint exercise later this year to prepare for an online attack against nuclear power plants and waste storage facilities.

A Government source insisted there was no “credible evidence” that terrorists were targeting British sites, but the exercise will ensure that both governments and their civil nuclear industries are prepared for a future attack.
